Brunch at You Say Tomato 

Randy Parks, Mark Wingard and Michael Pouncil opened this combination coffee shop, grocery store and luncheonette in the old Weneck Brothers grocery shop at 28th Street and Holmes. It’s no longer a grocery store in the traditional sense, though the original Art Deco-style wooden shelves are stocked with bags of pasta, spring-roll wrappers, jars of marinated vegetables, and artisan flatbread. Patrons can buy a stick of butter, a freshly made cappuccino or a snow cone. In the morning, the owners offer a breakfast sandwich, cinnamon rolls and quiche; sandwiches, soup and more quiche are available until 7 p.m. It’s a relaxed, attractive place that looks more like a 1920s neighborhood market than like a modern coffeehouse — you won’t find a place quite like it anywhere else in this century.
